After dispatching Accrington Stanley then Blackburn in friendlies at Finch Farm earlier this month, Everton flew out to Orlando where they beat Millonarios on penalties at the weekend.

Everton vs UNAM Pumas build-up & previous line-ups:
It’s been a summer of change at Everton after Carlo Ancelotti quit to re-join Real Madrid at the beginning of June. It sparked a protracted saga to hire Ancelotti’s successor, with the club eventually confirming the controversial appointment of former Liverpool boss Benitez.
Benitez has since added depth to his squad through the free signings of Andros Townsend, who he worked with at Newcastle, and Asmir Begovic. The Toffees have also signed Bayer Leverkusen winger Demarai Gray for a snip at £1.7m as Benitez plots an assault on the Premier League’s top six after last season’s home form cost them a stab at Europe.
All three new signings played their part in Sunday’s shootout win over Millonarios, with Townsend striking the bar from range before Gray’s penalty forced the game beyond the regulation 90 minutes. But it was Begovic who played the decisive role, denying Ricardo Marquez in the shootout before stepping up to convert the winning penalty.
- Everton (vs Millonarias): Begovic, Coleman, Holgate, Godfrey, Digne, Doucoure, Allan, Iwobi, James, Townsend, Kean
- UNAM Pumas (vs Atlas): Gonzalez, Mozo, Galindo, Freire, Rodriguez, Moreno, Lopez, Alvarez, Meritao, Saucedo, Dinenno
